And finally.....

.....I made some cards Whooppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :o)
Good morning everyone on this very wet and wild Sunday. I hope all is as well in your world as it can be...hugs
Thank you so much to all of you for your good wishes for Stephen, who continues making progress and is catching up on more than seven weeks of not seeing the telly :o)
Yes, I finally got some crafting time in yesterday and I hope to do so today. I made two Christmas cards, and this is the first of them. I will show the other one another day :o)


Base card is my usual white linen folded and cut to 7x5 then lightly chalked around the edges. 
The robin is, of course, my own photograph printed onto my favourite Papermania white textured card then cut with nestie, also lightly chalked, and raised on sticky foam. 
Cheery Lynn flourish with a hint of Glamour Dust and the greeting stamp is from Stamps and Smiles.
It was so good to get back into the craftroom :o)
